Aston Villa midfielder Steve Sidwell insists there was no malice in the tackle that left Wolves' Adlene Guedioura with a broken leg.

Algerian midfielder Guedioura suffered a fractured tibia after being caught by Sidwell late on during Villa's 2-1 win at Molineux on Sunday.

Sidwell told the club's official website: "I wish Adlene well and I hope he makes a quick and full recovery.

"Obviously, I went in to play the ball with no malice whatsoever.

"My intent was purely to play the ball and I'd just like to say again that I wish him all the best in his recovery."
